Kindle Our Love For Science Literacy!

My students need 2 Kindle Fire HD tablets to increase our literacy skills.

My Students

Bring your own technology or BYOT is the new wave of increasing the use of technology in our classrooms today but what exactly do you bring if you don't have any technology?

My students are some of the brightest, well-spoken, authentic students I've ever had the pleasure to teach.

Their desire to learn and explore the world around them is invigorating. These are students who attend a high poverty school but don't let their surroundings stop them from desiring more for themselves.

My Project

It is for these reasons that I'm requesting 2 Kindle Fire HD's so that my students are able to access and interact with science through literacy. With the use of the Kindles students will be able to download and read non-fiction magazines, stories, and articles. They will be able to increase their literacy skills while making real world connections through the use of technology.

I am asking that you help to support this project as your impact will mean so much to them and to myself.

Your donation will make a difference in the life of a child by exposing them to the world that exists beyond the classroom walls. You will not only increase the literacy levels of my students but you will increase their science knowledge as well, making them even more well-rounded, productive young students who are well prepared for success in their future.
